The woodpecker was so absorbed in the new dish at the buffet that he let me get quite close to him/her. Then, GAH! Didn’t see you there.The suet looks like I’m about to camp-toast some bread.
The new floor chips caused consternation this morning. I dropped the Silkie ramp and all the hens came pouring out as always, then erkk! Put the brakes on partway down the ramp, staring down at the chips I’d liberally sprinkled around before opening them. Traffic stoppage on the Silkieland downramp. Some of them were just fine with it, but some of them looked like I’d just filled their world with water, and they stuck out their necks, unwilling to jump down. Funny. And some of them stayed on the familiar hay, mincing around avoiding the shavings, again like it was water and they didn’t want to get wet.
